There is a flow chart with separate fields professional would work and their job position they would hold?

Not a flow chart but I think that's exactly what you are looking for.

What do you want to do in Security? This field is very broad and ranges from GRC to forensics.

Need experience and go for (ISC)2 CISSP or (ISACA) CISA that will set you in good pace and exposure for cyber security profession. Also SANS courses and degree are another you can check out esp on SANS GIAC certification
Many courses in the program use GIAC certifications as assessments of learning outcomes, and graduates of this degree program acquire more than seven GIAC certifications even before you graduate, including the GIAC Security Expert (GSE) certification, used as a capstone assessment.

OSCP is the only course I recommend, you get understanding you never will with CISSP/GSEC and others.
If you know how to use PC's, especially linux, you'll love the course, it's cheap too and includes the test in the price: https://www.offensive-security.com/information-security-certifications/oscp-offensive-security-certified-professional/

For hands-on, OSCP is good and CISSP / CISA is more on the professional "buy-in" for your prospective employer and personal career growth in the security community. Actually security conferences run the SANS courses and I do still see SANS course are pretty hands-on too e.g. GCIH, GPEN https://www.sans.org/courses/

OP still didn't answer what he wants to do... Your suggestions just cover GRC and red team. What about the rest of the security field?

Actually you may want to see this framework for cybersecurity training and scope of work, going into each scope of work, it states the KPI and the job. For e.g.

under the "Securely Provision" > "→ Information Assurance Compliance", it has its set of "Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities" (e.g. "Knowledge of IA principles and organizational requirements (relevant to confidentiality, integrity, availability, authentication, non-repudiation)" etc) listed leading to "Tasks" (e.g. "Develop security compliance processes and/or audits for external services" etc) to perform and the "Related Job Titles" (e.g. Auditor etc)
